Re: Deep Hatred of Black People in Israel

None of those other countries claim to be holier than thou, a shining light onto other nations, and committing genocide against Arabs and discrimination to high Hell against blacks and all the while shouting non-sense about all non-Jews being evil because of something that happened before they were...

Re: 75% of Americans Too Fat or Dumb to Join Army

Your logic is not worthy of an atheist. I give you endurance athletes who eat gigantic quantities of "evil" carbs. I'm pretty sure that none of Coito, myself, or the average fat person really qualifies as an endurance athelete. Still, endurance atheletes aren't immune to fat. Check out Bill Rodgers...

Re: 75% of Americans Too Fat or Dumb to Join Army

I did qualify my statements with "aside from medical issues," which covers the diabetic issue you cited. That doesn't apply to the average fat person. It was not the diabetes that caused that effect. It was the insulin - the same insulin a nondiabetic person would have created himself, just concent...

Re: 75% of Americans Too Fat or Dumb to Join Army

Aside from everything else, I feel the physical benefit of avoiding processed foods (the only canned foods I buy are for my earthquake kit, and tomato sauce for Italian food). Eating fresh is pretty affordable, actually, and I can feel the difference in my energy levels throughout the day. There is...

Re: 75% of Americans Too Fat or Dumb to Join Army

Poverty doesn't cause obesity. No, you're right, it's not a simple as that. But there is a strong correlation between the two and a whole load of other social issues mixed in. What is clear is that the problem is not going to go away by simplifying it to "They're overweight because they eat too muc...

Re: 75% of Americans Too Fat or Dumb to Join Army

Still an interesting article and it got linked from a new Wired article about how the US. Army is lowering their intelligence and fitness standards to accommodate the dumber, fatter American of today. The new wired article says that you no longer run in basic training because most of the potential ...

Re: 75% of Americans Too Fat or Dumb to Join Army

I'm not making any proposal about what to do about it - I'm simply pointing out the reality of what it's like for a poor person to feed themselves, and the many reasons why they are overweight, vs the reasons why middle or upper class folks are. It's just too simplistic to simply say "well, you can...

Re: 75% of Americans Too Fat or Dumb to Join Army

What's easier...having the time and where with all to drag bagfuls of groceries from the Walmart across town, cook the food from scratch, or stopping at the McDonalds a block away? Especially if you have to work two or three jobs to support your family? What can they afford ? That's my point...the ...

That you'll win on pure tech, or lose.
It implies that American soldiers are too fat to run to save their own asses.

Re: 75% of Americans Too Fat or Dumb to Join Army

“The major component of this is obesity,” Curt Gilroy, the Pentagon’s director of accessions, tells Army Times‘ William McMichael. “Kids are just not able to do push-ups… And they can’t do pull-ups. And they can’t run.” I thought fixing that was what basic training was all about. You can't turn pig...
